Afternoon crafters :) The sun's shining today, not warm enough to ditch the thermals just yet!
I have had an amazing crafting week...for my birthday my partner booked me in for a 1 to 1 lesson with Lisa at in Eastbourne.  We had great fun playing with various embossing flakes and powders with dylusions ink sprays on wooden tags and ribbons.  Time absolutely flew by-like it does when ur enjoying yourself and getting messy! The spray inks have some really vibrant colours. They are next on my wishlist!
On the right is an amazing Holder Case for storing my embossing folders and dies (on magnetic sheets) - a brilliant birthday present from my partner who had got the idea from Create & Craft tv!  Feels great to be a bit organised! I also got the alphabet and number dies (Parker, Memory Box, inc.) which I'm really pleased with as I can do so much more with the letters and numbers...such as this Diamond Anniversary card..

I mostly used the Papermania Vintage Notes collection.  The colours blend so well. A joy to work with.

Over the week I made a couple of valentines cards, one was a last minute request with haribo jelly rings as the theme as her partner proposed with a yellow and orange jelly ring 9 yrs ago, hence 9 jellies! 

The following card I made for my wife which she loved so much she has it displayed on her desk at work! Aww :)

Thank u for taking the time to read my blog.

Wishing everyone a Happy WOYWW, am lookin fwd to being inspired by your creative desks as I take a look around...
